Marco Rubio mum about his Senate plans; remains opposed to Trump's Muslim ban



Two days after opening the door to another Senate run, Marco Rubio declined to answer questions Wednesday about his plans.

"There's a time and place for everything. This is neither the place nor the time. I don't want to talk about campaigns today. Nothing's changed. If something does, I'll promise you, you'll know, but nothing has," Rubio said after leaving a meeting with Florida House members to discuss Zika.

Rubio, speaking with a small group of reporters, said he remains opposed to Donald Trump's proposed ban on Muslims. It would not have prevented the Orlando massacre. "The killer was born in the same place Donald was: Queens."

"It just doesn't solve anything and it exacerbates a bunch of different things," Rubio said of Trump's controversial plan. "I didn't support it. Never have. Still don't."

Do you still support Trump? "I don't have anything to add to what I've said previously ..."
